Quote “Quote Unqoute” End qoute

The “Quote, Unqoute” disease seems to be afflicting every human being. I attended a workshop this morning put on by several Ph.Ds and even in that setting I heard this ridiculous phrase dozens of times. Quote, unquote is like saying “said, unsaid.” It isn’t even correct to say “quote, end quote” before citing someone else’s words. You must start with saying quote then dictate the word(s) and then say end quote so that it mirrors how a quoted phrase would actually look on paper (i.e. Andrew says that saying quote, unquote is a (quote) “disease” (end quote).

  2. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to know a lot about this,
    such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I believe that you simply can do with some p.c. to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.

    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
